If I pass on, they're all yours, Gene! Just make sure if you win, you gloat and rub it in. Just like I would have!

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Eva, thanks for the point even though I didn't get the location. I was totally unaware there was a monument like this in Oakland. Never heard of it before. Great question!

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Thanks, Roger, I'm glad y'all liked the question! The point is well deserved because you delivered the keywords to Google the place - if I enter "remember - Abraham Lincoln - Churchill - statue - leaders", the monument will show up in 5th position.

Can I have your points then?

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
It looks like a sink. I think it was Robert Lincoln's????

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Kudos to both of you, Thomas and Joe!
   
Well, I thought that could turn out to be a quick one (but I just couldn't leave out Hildene). I prepared a second question in case that would realize. Please hold the line...

Mary Harlan Lincoln's?

So when is this "Old Enough To Know Better" supposed to kick in?

#23b - what/who hides here?

(Is this now the most correct answer from the management point of view as Robert probably didn't enter the kitchen much, or is it legally viewed his due to owning Hildene?)

RE: Trivia Advent Calendar
Well observed that this is some lady, Laurie. Lincoln was certainly not on any bill in her purse though.

If you want to get technical, a domestic servant probably used that sink more than anyone else.
